Some Basic Information About My Site and My Files:

First a note about my files:

All my files are for personal use. I do not charge for any files I create. I share them here for others to use for personal use only. Please do not use them to submit for contests, etc. without getting my permission first. Please give credit where credit is due. I will try to do the same. This means I will try to identify where I got an item or a project if I didn't create it myself and there is an identifable source. Sometimes however I use basic clipart or coloring pages. You may however share these files with others for their personal use (you may not charge for them - you may pass them on for free) or you may point them here to my blog to get the files themselves. If a download file is available, it will appear at the bottom of the post and will be in a different color text.

PLEASE NOTE: I reside in the USA where we use the MM/DD/YYYY date format on computers (and in everything else we do!) If you are outside the USA where they use the DD/MM/YYYY date format on computers, you MAY experience an "Unhandled exception" error when you try to open one of my Cricut DS files. It is an error related to the date format. An easy fix is available at SusanBlueRobot's Blog. Susan has a simple HexEdit program and directions which will allow you to alter the date so you can use the files. Note: This is only an issue if the save date of the file is after the 12th of the month! It is also only an issue with DS files. I have never seen this issue with MTC or SCAL.

Tower Box for SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot)

Well - we made it back from visiting the big Mouse and his friends in Orlando. We had a great time. But good to be back home and back in the "routine" of school and life!
Here is a "tower" box that I created using SCAL (sure cuts alot). In working with SCAL to make this box, I realized that SCAL doesn't allow you to have multiple "mats" or pages in one file. You can in DS. This is helpful so that you can create different "items" that go with one file. For example, a full box on one mat and then the same box with a "cut-out" or "window" on another mat and then the "window" shape on another mat and the score lines on yet another mat! :( bummer. So, there is only one "box" in this file. I think where to score is obvious. If not, let me know and I will try to post directions or photos. Download the .svg file for the tower box here. Download the .scut file (SCAL) file here.
